COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a part of a Single Hop IPA series by Mikkeller. We created this series to showcase hop varieties on their own. This gives the consumer the possibility of smelling and tasting the unique characteristics of each variety and hopefully helping to educate people about the wonderful world of hops. For each beer, the single hop variety was used in the same weight for bittering, aroma and flavor and for dry hopping. All 19 varieties of single hop beers in this series were brewed the same week and with malts from the same batches and the same yeast and fermentation temperatures. This is done to better compare the characteristics of the different hop varieties.

Slightly juicy hops in the aroma as well as a bit earthy. The flavor is citrus, a bit of yeast and earthy with a dry finish. Not spectacular but cleans up well.

330mL bottle generously sent across the pond by stobbe74. The bottle pours copper with gold edges and a bit hazy when the yeasty sediment is involved. The hop laden liquid supports a near white sort of head. The aroma offers spiciness and then I pick up some grapefruit followed by bitter smelling almost pine resiny hops. The taste has a nice wad of spicy goodness and then picks up faint levels of both grapefruit citrus like hops and a bit of floral too.

VsXsV (2143) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2011
Sample from 33 cl bottle at SBWF 2011. Almost clear amber liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of candy, dark berries, citrus, caramel, earthy hops, Brittish hops. Reminds me of East Kent Goldings. Medium to high bitter with light sweetness. Feel brittish and refreshing. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Quite tasty, but I’m not a huge fan of the more brittish tasting hops.
